Kaoru Mori

Kaoru Mori is a Japanese artist who creates ball-jointed dolls (not to be confused with the manga artist who created Emma). Her work is dark and dreamlike, often featuring grotesque, scarred or dismembered dolls. Kaoru Mori documents her work on her blog but prefers to have her dolls photographed by others including Yukio Yoshinari and Hitoshi Iwakiri. She has produced two books, Sleepless Forest of Maidens (眠れぬ森の処女(おとめ)たち) and Parfum de Bois.
